I rewatched Rocknrolla on Saturday and I’d forgotten just how good it is. It’s a very good movie, but the thing that stops it from a great movie is, I think, the character of Johnny Quid, played by Toby Kebbel. I think TK is a great actor, and I’d have liked to see a film that was all about JQ, but as a part of the overall story arc, he jarred. The rest of the movie could have been up there with Lock Stock and Snatch.
Have to add that the cast are fantastic, though I doubt that there’d be enough cash to get them all into a promised sequel.
Then yesterday, I rewatched The Gentlemen, and it was seriously good. Colin Farrell is in some great, offbeat movies, and all the cast were excellent.
Two movies in one weekend. Got to be a record.
